Funny Girls to the Front

Featuring the diverse, iconoclastic talents of Carolyn Castiglia, Bridget Everett, Erin Markey, Larissa Velez-Jackson, and Becky Yamamoto. Hosted by Adira Amram and the Experience.

Drawing inspiration from two disparate sources—Sarah Marcus’s book Girls to the Front: The True Story of the Riot Grrrl Revolution and the Barbara Streisand movie Funny Girl (a musical comedy about a Follies star who leaves her husband after he nearly sabotages her entire career)—tonight’s program, “Funny Girls to the Front,” showcases a line-up of female artists who make music funny on their own terms. These irrepressible entertainers employ original music in provocative and hilarious ways as an integral part of their performance practices, confronting assumptions and redefining the boundaries of their chosen disciplines (comedy, cabaret, performance art, and contemporary dance) in the process.
